PX cancels flights over fuel restrictions

This unfortunate decision has been necessitated by the recent imposition of jet fuel restrictions by Puma Energy Ltd.

Air Niugini stated in a media release today, “Our primary concern remains the safety and well-being of our customers and crew, and the decision to cancel flights has been taken to ensure that safety standards are upheld considering the fuel supply constraints.”

The airline is actively engaging in discussions with Puma Energy and relevant stakeholders to urgently address the fuel supply issues and find a swift resolution.
